Cash. We were beginning to need it desperately. Our hopes were pinned on finding something in Burkina Faso’s capital, Ouagadougou. A whole day of wandering from bank to bank trying to pronounce Grand Bretagne in French eventually proved fruitful at La Banque Internationale du Burkina (BIB) where they only made us pay a 4% commission to change British pounds. Another bank even took our traveler’s cheques. Money in hand we felt confident that we could spend another few weeks in the Franc zone and decided to get a visa des pays de l'entente to enter Benin and Togo before circling back to finish in Ghana. At the BF Dept. of Migration, we were told that it would take three days to process such a visa, which would have been too late for the next bi-weekly bus to Benin. Having flashbacks of when we were trapped in Guyana we pleaded with the official if it could be done plus rapidé.
